One person is dead after a gun was accidently discharged inside of a 911 dispatch center.
The incident occurred on Friday around 1 a.m. at the Bell County Sheriff’s Department in Kentucky.
Kentucky State Police reported that two employees were exchanging fire arms when one of them went off and struck a 23-year-old.
